Why Molechecks?

We have been leading the way since 1997. We have an outstanding melanoma diagnosis rate with over 700 melanomas diagnosed in recent years – most of them at a very early stage.

Thousands of basal and squamous cell cancers (more common than melanoma) have also been diagnosed.

Our highly trained Doctors and Melanographers use:

Whole Body Photography

About half of all melanomas emerge on plain skin. This can be detected if we have a photo record of the skin for future comparison.


Dermoscopy is the technology that lets us look through the skin to its structures, allowing us to clearly diagnose moles.
You can see what is not possible to see with the naked eye. Using dermoscopy the diagnosis rate for melanomas increases from 40-50% to over 90%.


Every Mole/Mark Assesed

A dermoscope is used to assess every mole on the body. Not all early melanomas are visible to the naked eye. Some melanomas we have diagnosed have been as small as 1mm in diameter. In most cases, our patients were not aware of the melanoma on their body.

Serial Monitoring

All moles with abnormal structures are saved. Healthy moles do not change or change in predictable ways. Melanomas change and rewrite their structure. Serial monitoring enables early detection of melanomas. Takes diagnosis to over 95%

Our Technology

Molemax® technology uses polarised light to create a 30X magnified image on a computer screen. In many cases dermoscopy can require messy oils or gels to be placed on the skin to achieve an enhanced image. Molemax® dermoscopy imaging does not require oil. This means every mole can be assessed without discomfort to the patient.
